Sickness at the Well is an event in Dragon Age: The Last Court. It is continued from the card The Fields or The Knight Requests an Audience.

Description Edit

You call for your court physician: a short, pinch-faced man you employed for his steely nerves, not his bedside manner.

"The disease causes a burning fever, loosens the bowels, and - in the worst cases - kills," the physician tells you. "The well's to blame. Can you smell that? Like brine mixed with rotting fruit. Some foulness of the earth has tainted the water."
